Bosch, a leading global technology supplier, has collaborated with Jaguar Land Rover to introduce Bosch’s mySPIN technology on select vehicles in 2015. Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe and Range Rover Evoque models will demonstrate this innovative solution as InControlTM Apps for the first time during the New York International Auto Show beginning April 18. This technology creates a device-to-vehicle link that provides users with the opportunity to continue using preferred apps in a way they are accustomed to, comfortably through the vehicle’s in-dash display.
mySPIN is the smartphone integration solution that creates a perfect device-to-vehicle link and ensures safe and reliable in-car use via the vehicle display. It allows users to continue using their preferred apps on their iPhone(R) or Android smartphone in the way they are accustomed to and without compromising safety. This smartphone integration solution will be introduced under the name InControl(TM) Apps in Jaguar Land Rover vehicles. (Graphic: Business Wire)
“As the world becomes increasingly more connected, consumers are expecting their vehicle to be an extension of their lifestyle in ways that were not even possible just a few years ago,” said Juergen Peters, regional president, Car Multimedia, Robert Bosch LLC. “Bosch is pleased to partner with Jaguar Land Rover to allow the end user to bring their preferred apps into the vehicle so they can be safely applied.”
The mySPIN smartphone integration solution creates a channel where smartphone apps are made vehicle-compatible by presenting drivers with only relevant information, thus minimizing distraction. After the launcher app is downloaded to the mobile phone, popular smartphone apps will then be displayed and controlled through the vehicle display. Apps that can be used with this technology include: iHeartRadio, Parkopedia, Hotelseeker, Glympse, Sygic Navigation, Stitcher, News OnBoard, Winston, CitySeeker, EventSeeker, MilageTracker and MobileDay. In the future, drivers can enjoy an expanding range of apps.
